BAIT (2019) - Dir. Mark Jenkin

‘Stunningly shot on a vintage 16mm camera using monochrome Kodak stock, Mark Jenkin’s remarkable new film is a timely and funny, yet poignant tale that gets right to the heart of a Cornish community facing an unwelcome change.’ Watershed

Modern-day Cornish fisherman Martin (Edward Rowe) is struggling to buy a boat while coping with family rivalry and the influx of London money, holiday-homes and stag parties to his harbour village. The summer season brings simmering tensions within the community to boiling point, with tragic consequences.
Mark Kermode reviews Bait. A fisherman without a boat - his brother having repurposed it as a tourist tripper - is displaced to the estate above the harbor after his childhood home becomes a getaway for holidaying Londoners. Please tell us what you think of the film -- or Mark's review of the film.
